Recently was my Husband and I's fifth year anniversary and he asked me to discontinue my birth control. He did not directly come out and say that he wanted a family but I knew what this meant :). I came straight out and asked "does this mean you want to start a family?" He said he did not know. We both tend to second guess ourselves when it comes to starting a family because we don't view ourselfs as being a "Mother" and "Father". I have to admit the idea still frightens me. I have stopped and we officially trying but don't want to ruin the experience of sex by making it about trying to concieve. I'm 27 years old and feel like this is a perfect time to reproduce but I'm still terrified with the idea of being a Mommy. Also bill and mortgage ahhhh! Did you mothers feel this way with your first child?
I never felt that way, in fact I couldnt wait to have a baby. It is scary. I now have four kids and dont know why i did as the world is so screwed up I am feeling guilty about it. lol. I wouldnt give them up for anything in the world, but it sure makes you wonder. You will more than likely be a good parent as all you need is to love them and make sure to keep them safe. It kicks in naturally. If you do have a baby, cherish every moment and take tons of pictures. It really does go by fast.
